Where to play Musketeer Chess online

Each player will play with the usual 16 chess pieces + 2 new pieces, the new pieces are identical for both players. The choice of the new pieces is an agreement: white chooses the first piece and then black chooses the second piece.
There are 10 musketeer pieces: Leopard, Hawk, Chancellor, Archbishop, Elephant, Unicorn, Cannon, Dragon, Fortress and Spider.

Where to play Musketeer Chess online

Post by red-rodent » Thu Apr 04, 2019 11:01 am

Hi all,
Where can I play Musketeer Chess online, what with the Jocly server down. It has been for ages and there are signs it will be fixed anytime soon. Any signposts would be appreciated - thanks!

True Jocly is still down, probably not possible at the moment.

If you are interested to play correspondece at 1 to 3 days per move I can play with you. After 1 or 2 moves I will update the board by posting an updated image.

It is pity, that I can not play Musketeerchess online anymore and that there is no software program to play against a special engine. I played often musketeerchess on jocly server... :-(

Yes, miss those online Musketeer Chess games as well. However, I suspect it is hard to get a playing site up and running. Also there are not a massive number of variant players and when there are they all have different favorite games. I am playing some games on Greenchess.net now. They have games like Gothic Chess and Janus Chess as well as something called Half Top Heavy Chess that pits an Amazon army (Dragon plus reduce 4 step rooks against a regular black array.) It is somewhat interesting, but does not compare to Musketeer Chess.

:) right see that musketeer chess is now working at http://musketeerchess.net/games/musketeer/index.php

Lets play then if you are available, will just post the image after every move. Perhaps a minimum of 1 move in 3 days.

Anybody there who would like to play musketeer chess, I can play if your are available, just have to post the moves and image after couple of moves to get in sync with the game. Musketeer board at http://musketeerchess.net/games/musketeer/index.php is now working. But we need to keep track of our moves manually.
